Relationships 101 – Rage-aholics, and the Ritual of Family Dinners

Dr. Simon Casey, author of Couples in Chaos, spoke with me about road rage and rage-aholics. The primary fuel for this explosive rage is not power, as these people would like to believe, but fear and hurt which the rage covers. John Nowicki shared his nuclear family’s ritual of nightly dinners and his extended family of 39 people who gather every Sunday evening at his parents’ to a home cooked pasta dinner. We discussed strategies for parents to institute dinner rituals.
